Actually, despite the name the tank clearly has a few soft corals, too.

Tanks like this are cleverer than they look. They’re not just pleasing on the eye — keeping the decoration in the middle like that effectively doubles the territory, and keeps fish out of each other’s sight.

The drilled rock has been pinned together using plastic rods. A fair bit of effort, but worth it!

Some of those fish are pretty big for the available swimming room, and there doesn’t appear to be anywhere for them to hide really. Overall they look pretty frantic to me. I don’t see this working out too well in the long run.
